I write a program A which runs on computer A and Program B which runs on computer B. These two grograms uses TCP/IP Sockets to communicate.

If the connection cannot be established, Program A need to know that the problem is program B not running or Computer B not power on (assuming the cable connection and others are not problem).

How can I know the difference?

Get the ICS components from Francois Piette. There is a TPing component.
The Indy components (part of Delphi 6 or http://www.nevrona.com) should also contain a Ping component.
